Metro-North advances PTC on 90 percent of Hudson Line
Full PTC functionality was commissioned on the Hudson Line from Croton Harmon to Poughkeepsie in September. In Connecticut, trains traveling the 23-mile Danbury Branch, including all Metro-North trains and Providence & Worcester Railroad Co. freight trains, began operating with PTC in August.
